Printmaking in Japan

Short history of printmaking in Japan

In the 19th -century Tokyo, the center for the production of luxury goods for domestic and export markets, connoisseurship of ukkkiyo-e prints had been established at least a century earlier. Appreciation for ukiyo-e originally flowered in Kyoto, the ancient imperial capitol. In Tokyo it was one of the many courtly arts to be cultivated by a new mercantile society.
